Honey Bear


Harrison had an amazing time at Cubs 100, doing activities including rifle shooting, death drop !!, caving, made a clock, zip wiring, mop hockey !! - in fact when he came back, he was a bit like a zombie for 3 days !!, on Thursday i took H and a friend to Arundel Wetlands and this week H is doing Circus skills on Tuesday, then days out with friends.

Just spotted your comment about the Misti Sam. It's a shame it doesn't work with wood mounted stamps isn't it - wood mounted are my first love and I still buy them. Can't understand why folk actually make a bit thing out of unmounting their wooden stamps - seems crazy! The Humming Bird is wood mounted - somehow they always seem to give a more reliable and better impression than unmounted or polymer stamps. Probably why the Misti was developed in the first place :)!!
